Donald Trump
On 18 August 2016 five statues of then presidential nominee Donald Trump, commissioned by the activist collective Indecline, were placed in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Seattle. The nude figure is wearing a masonic square and compasses emblem ring, although Las Vegas-based sculptor, Ginger (Joshua Monroe), has stated in an interview with Greg Stewart that he knew Trump was not a Freemason but used the ring to symbolize his secret dealings. While claiming to respect Freemasons and their good work, the use of this iconic symbol further mythologizes and marginalizes the organization that it is known to represent.
